  • Organic Chemistry

    This semester, I’m in a course entitled Principles of Chemistry I. Currently, I need to learn and store trends of the periodic table. One particularly hard area is electron affinity and ionization energy trends. Electron affinity is how willing an element is to gain an electron, and ionization energy is how willing the element is to lose an electron. Remembering which direction each of those two trends go on the periodic table has been difficult for me. I’m trying to store this information in my long-term memory because it’s information I’ll need in the future. Next semester I am taking Principles of Chemistry II, and the year after I will be in Organic Chemistry. Chemistry is a topic that continually builds on its basic concepts, so this is…

  • Professor Bahde's Organic Chemistry

    The learning assistants for Professor Bahde’s Organic Chemistry I class, Allyson Dang and I, wanted to give the students a problem to work on involving a reaction mechanism. The students in that class have been struggling in many areas of the subject, but the main issue they have is drawing out reaction mechanisms. Knowing how to draw out reaction mechanisms is one of the most, if not the most important part of organic chemistry. When theoretically reacting molecules, one must know not only…

  • Organic Chemistry Synthesis

    Extraction was the main method of removing compounds from the sample. The component X was removed from the sample by first adding the organic solvent dichloromethane to the test tube. After aggravation, the component X dissolved into the solvent. Since components Y and Z were insoluble in the organic solvent they remained as solids. The test tube was then placed into a centrifuge and ran for thirty seconds. By doing so, the unsettled solid were forced to accumulate at the bottom of the test…

  • What I Learned In Organic Chemistry Class

    Organic chemistry is a challenge. So many people have told me how demanding and scary it is, and even though I was terrified coming into this year, I am ready to take on the challenge. It is a challenge that will hopefully end up with a rewarding learning experience as well as prepare me for life after college. Throughout this course, I think that it is vital to know how you learn best, what the professor is expecting of you, as well as how the class is structured and the policies within it.…

  • Organic Chemistry Classroom Observation

    Observations were made for a neighboring science teacher. Ms. C (whose name will remain confidential) teaches all marine ecology courses. A class typically filled with juniors and seniors. At the school, this is an elective course taken as a student’s final science requirement for graduation. Most of the students who enroll in the class do not wish to take the harder elective options such as an AP class, physics, or chemistry. I observed the teacher during her first block class while she was…

  • Student Transfer Students

    I see many issues as a threat to our community of transfer students and I as a transfer student can empathize with them on some of these issues. One issue is lack of knowing the vast resources that UMD provides for its students. Many transfer students come to UMD and notice that it’s nothing like their community college they are exposed to differences in class and campus size, academic rigor, etc. The fact that many transfer students don’t know the various resources that UMD offers such as…

  • Benzoic Acid Synthesis

    This experiment was conducted to practice a variety of techniques in organic chemistry: separation, mechanisms, acid-base reactions, evaporation, recrystallization, and identification. The goal of this experiment was to identify the unknown mixture of two compounds. The two compounds were separated first by altering the acid components solubility through deprotonation, and then protonating the acid component again to form the separated precipitate. The ether in the neutral layer was evaporated,…

  • Rhetorical Analysis Essay On Chemist Lee Cronin

    PRINT YOUR OWN MEDICINE Chemist Lee Cronin is a professor of chemistry and nanoscience and chemical complexity. He founded the Cronin group who is focused on complex functional molecular architectures that are not based on biologically derived building blocks. Cronin’s idea is to “app” chemistry and by this he means making a “really cool universal chemistry set”. He speaks with confidence to a mature audience that has an interest in the future of chemistry and medicine and those who create or…
